Hi all,
I recently purchased a property and the previous owner left a backhoe on the property. I'm trying to identify it so I can be confident in getting it running well - low fluids, couple leaks etc..

Some serial numbers in photo below that will hopefully help - I can't seem to type them out as it thinks I'm spam

I think it is a Ford. It has no PTO. It is a 3 cylinder diesel

Im in Australia

Trying to attached some photos too

Many thanks

That's difficult to ID alright, at least for someone who lives in the USA. The sheet metal is Ford, the numbers you posted below are Ford-
esque with the exception of the first one, however the loader and backhoe are like nothing I've ever seen before. In addition, I don't
recognize the rear wheel bolt pattern. The front axle looks a little strange as well.

Would love to see more close-up pics of the tractor itself if possible.

D1011C would be an ag chassis 3 cylinder 4000 with a diesel engine, no PTO and a 6 speed transmission made on or after 4/1/1968. The nosecone shell with the missing grill looks correct for that model tractor. The front axle is much heavier duty and does not look like a Ford front axle. I believe I've seen pictures of a similar machine that was converted by a company in Australia that imported them specifically for that purpose.

Thank you

sorry just testing as my replys keep disappearing, more to follow.

Interesting on the import and changes, as the tractor itself seems to have originally been blue, but the bucket and backhoe only ever yellow. Hydraulic reservoir is under the left rear wheel arch and seems aftermarket

That's definitely a 4000 chassis alright. I didn't know the 4000s used a 6-bolt rear axle flange until I looked at another one about an hour ago. For some reason I thought they were all 8.
